Prepared Roofing and Building Papers 

Prepared Pelt Roofing has now come into almost universal use as a substitute for 
shingles and this material gives splendid satisfaction and a perfect roof at a very big 
saving in cost. As a matter of fact you can cover any building with Prepared Felt 
Roofing selected from this catalogue for at least half the cost of a shingle roof and in 
many cases about one-third the cost of shingles and at the same time secure a roof which 
will prove just as satisfactory and last just as long as the best grade of shingles. 

We show a big variety of prepared roofings and building papers in the pages of this 
catalogue, and you will find we handle every quality needed for any purpose and at prices 
about half those charged by retailers for similar grades. Our volume of business has 
been growing larger and larger each year, until now our contracts with manufacturers 
call for the largest quantities sold by any single merchandising house in the country. 
Our roofings are made for us by the best manufacturers in the business. ^ In fact the 
roofings sold by us are widely advertised by the manufacturers under their own trade 
names and sold by dealers everywhere at just about double our prices. We- use the same 
roofing exactly, but sell it under our own brands, and for this reason and the further fact 
that we buy enormous quantities and therefore get a low manufacturing cost we are able 
to name the low prices quoted in this catalogue. 

We cut out every middleman between the factory and you, we sell on 
a very narrow margin of profit and you get the benefit in the form of 
prices about half those asked iy retailers. 

2 Montgomery Ward & Co., Chicago and Kansas City 

Our Prepared Roofings Are Very Easily 
Applied, no Special Tools Being Necessary 

Koofing is put up in rolls of 108 sq. ft., and sufficient cement and large headed gal- 
vanized nails are packed in the core of each roll to lay the material. As a matter of fact 
the only tools necessary are a hammer and a pair of shears or a knife. If you are erecting 
a new building, a barn, a corn crib, a carriage house, a dairy, in short any kind of a farm 
building, we strongly advise the use of prepared roofing. 

If you have an old building that requires a new roof you 
will find it cheaper and easier to recover the building with 
prepared roofing than to reshingle. in fact, the roofing may be 
laid right over the shingles, doing away with the necessity of 
removing the old covering. If you are erecting a temporary 
bnilding you cannot afford to consider anything but prepared 
roofing as the roof cover. All our roofings are standard and 
the descriptions quoted herein are guaranteed absolutely accur- 
ate. When we say we send you 2-ply you may depend upon 
receiving 2-Db' roofing. We have buiit up this great business 
by giving our customers dependable merchandise at a big sav- 
ing in price and we intend to continue our business career by 
following the fair dealing methods which have characterised 
this house from Urn beginning. 

We also show a complete«line of metal roofing, siding and 
ceiling, everything you will need for roof trimming— in short, 
we are able to supply you every material required in the way 
of prepared roofings, building papers, sheet metal roofings, 
ceilings, and galvanized roof trimmings. We handle only the 
bast grades of materials and the prices we quote in this book- 
let speak for themselves. You cannot secure equal qualities 
e^ewhere for anywhere near our prices. We guarantee our 
merchandise to give complete satisfaction, to be strictly A 
grade, and that any purchase made from vs will result in a 
very big saving over the prices you will pay the average retail 
dealer for equal qualities. 

We carry large stocks of all merchandise shown in this catalogue and are prepared to 
fill your order promptly. In ordering give us catalogue numbers and name of each article 
required, enclosing our price in full with your order and we will give your order our 
prompt attention and in just a few days' time the goods will be ready for you at your 
nearest railway station.

M. W. & Co. Brand Pre P aml 522!il 

This is the best low priced roofing made and it is in every way equal to Qualities, 
sold by retailors at SI. 50 per roll and vastly superior to grades sold by many dealers 
at 7 5c to 85c per roll. In fact, this rooting is being imitated in appearance and 
price within the past year or two, but a sample of rooting which is offered as "just as 
good." when compared with ours, shows that the "just-as-good" kind is very inferior. 
Our M. W. & Co. brand rooting is made from extra selected long fibre wool felt thor- 
oughly saturated with an insoluble waterproofing composition making a flexible and solid 
fabric winch is absolutely waterproof. 

We sell enormous quantities of tins roofing and it makes a most economical roof. 
Anyone can lay it, can be laid in any climate, and is adapted to all kinds of roofs. 
It is not affected by steam, gas or acids, resists fire better than a tin roof, and when 
properly coated with our Ready Roof Coating, described on page 8, it will last as 
long as the average building. It does not taint the rain water. A jack knife, 
hammer and roofing brush are the only tools necessary to lay it and in first cost it 
is the cheapest roofing made and requires little or no expense to maintain. Of 
course, it is not so high grade and does not look as well as our high grade Atlas 
and Lakeside brands, described on pages 3 and 4 of this catalogue, and if you can 
afford the slightly higher price we ask for these brands we would advise you to buy 
tho Atlas or the Lakeside, but for ordinary purposes and especially for temporary 
buildings which you want to erect as cheaply as possible, our M. W. & Co. brand 
will give entire satisfaction. It can be used over old shingles. Sweep the shingles 
clean and naii down any that are loose or warped. 

This rooting is put up in rolls of 10S square feet. Width of roll. 3 2 inches. 
Our price docs not include nails or roof coating, both of which should he ordered 
at the same time. To properly apply this roofing requires 1 % pounds tin caps, 
1 pound of nails, and 2 gallons of ready roof coating to eacli roll of roofing. See
